Biden Makes Visit to Buffalo About Himself, but Trips All Over His Own Hypocrisy – Opinion

Joe Biden visited Buffalo’s Tops Market on Tuesday. There was a shooting at which 10 people died and another three were hurt on Saturday. The police called the incident a hate crime and eleven of those who were shot were Black.

Biden spoke at the Delevan Grider Community Center. Biden opened his remarks talking about the death of his son Beau due to cancer.

I’m sorry, but that’s not the same, and it’s not always about him. The families that have lost loved ones are the focus of this article, not him and his wife. You don’t show you care more by making it about you. You don’t know what they’ve gone through; otherwise, you’d never make such a comparison. They didn’t die because they were sick over time. The racist assassin took them suddenly. Don’t tell people how they are going to feel, because you don’t know. Be honest and say: I don’t know how you feel, but I will do what I can to be helpful. Don’t use your son as a prop either.

Biden had made similar remarks about it feeling like a “black hole” on Sunday at a police memorial event, but he hasn’t figured out how tone-deaf such remarks are.

He was taking notes of victims’ names, but he fell on one and misplaced the victim’s first name.

He made it all about him, claiming that this was the reason he ran to be president, citing his disgust at white supremacists marching on Charlottesville in Virginia. He then went on to list some mass shootings, including “this week in Dallas, Texas.” He then followed that by saying “white supremacy is a poison.” While the Dallas local news has reported that the police are looking at it as a possible hate crime, they have said nothing about “white supremacy,” indeed mentioning a possible black suspect.

“Look: the American experiment in democracy is in a danger like it hasn’t been in my lifetime,” Biden said. “Hate and fear are being given too much oxygen by those who pretend to love America but who don’t understand America. To confront the ideology of hate requires caring about all people and not making distinctions.”

Why then did Biden employ focus groups to devise a method to make his political enemies look bad? They came up with demonizing millions of people by calling them “ultra MAGA,” and Biden called them the most extreme group in history. That’s insane, and pitching hate and division. Joe, you’re constantly spreading hate. Don’t be hypocritical.

Many also noted that while Biden immediately went to Buffalo, he didn’t go to Waukesha, where a black man, Darell Brooks, who had also posted racist things including about attacking white people and then allegedly drove an SUV into white people at a Christmas parade. Those people are still waiting for the visit that didn’t come. Biden condemned white supremacy in Buffalo, as he should, but he’s silent on other attacks that don’t fit that parameter.

When asked about why he was visiting Buffalo but had not visited Waukesha, new White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wasn’t able to give a response.
